Madonna Warns American Fans Not to Get "Fat and Lazy"
Madonna has never been a stranger to controversy but the Material Girl is definitely ruffling feathers on her MDNA tour. She gave an impromptu performance at Paris’ Olympia club in an effort to repair the damage from showing a picture of French political figure Marine Le Pen with a swastika on her head. Then she bailed on the Australian leg of her tour even though she hasn’t performed in the country in almost twenty years!
Now she has started the North American dates and during her first performance, which was in Philadelphia, Madonna had some words for her American audience after spending months in Europe. The pop icon has been vocal in her support of female Russian group, Pussy Riot, who were sentenced to jail time because their behavior was deemed insulting and motivated by religious hate. As such, she told her Philly crowd to "never forget how lucky you are to live where you live and to have the freedom that you have. In my travels around the world the one thing I truly witnessed is we in America have freedom of speech, freedom of expression."
Of course, she pointed out that she was performing in the city where the Declaration of Independence was signed and called the United States the “land of democracy.”
She did have some other things to say, though. The 53-year-old, who is known for her grueling workouts, told her fans not to “get fat and lazy and take that freedom for granted."
This, of course, after having to apologize to the booing crowd because she didn’t actually get on stage until around 10:30pm. Maybe someone should tell Madonna not to take her fans for granted (especially the ones in Australia!).
